Teeth Whitening San Francisco


Safe, fast, and extremely popular, teeth whitening can change your look dramatically with just a single appointment.


Staining or discoloration of teeth may be external or internal. External staining usually occurs on the outer surface of the tooth due to consumption of certain foods or drinks (i.e. coffee, tea, soy sauce) or tobacco products. Internal staining starts inside the tooth itself and is caused by injury to the tooth, certain medications or developmental defects.Teeth whitening is a safe and effective method to improve your smile and brighten your teeth.

There are two types of teeth whitening:

In-Office Whitening — This technique offers the fastest results. First, your gums will be covered with a protective barrier. A whitening gel is then applied to your teeth. The gel may be left on for up to an hour. When it is removed, the results will be visible immediately.

Take-Home Whitening — This is an effective way to whiten your teeth, which allows you to control the desired outcome. An impression of your teeth will be made and then two thin, plastic mouth trays will be custom-made to for you — one for the top teeth and one for the bottom teeth. Specific instructions regarding their use will be provided to you at the delivery appointment.

To enjoy long-lasting results, please maintain your daily routine of brushing and flossing along with regular professional cleanings at the dental office. Avoid foods and beverages that stain, including red wine, tea, coffee, and smoking.
